A few days a week the kids get the bus home from school. There is a park near the bus stop and occasionally we stay for a play before coming home and getting the afternoon stuff started. We did that on Tuesday with Cupcake Oma and my niece A. The kids had a wonderful time and when we got back to the car this had fallen from a tree and landed on the hood so we brought it home. It has been sitting on the dinner table all week long. A pretty reminder of a little spot of joy.
It has been very cold this week. I decided to blatantly copy all those New Yorkers I saw in Febraury and bought myself a big grey snood at KMart. It is warm and cosy and speaks to my questionable sense of style.
